Anybody Can Kayak!
Anybody Can Kayak! River Running is the most detailed, precise, and easy-to-follow river running instruction imaginable.
It not only teaches you skills such as eddying out and punching a whole, but it also spends a great deal of time showing you how to read a river, pick a route, assess the risks of that route, and then mentally prepare for a successful run. It’s two disks and four hours of hard core instruction. Most Topics are explained in class 2 whitewater, then demonstrated in class 3, 4 and 5. Much of it’s in slow motion or stop action, with plenty of graphics so you can understand exactly what’s going on.
